Declarations of Interest
No interests were declared at the meeting.
The sub-committee received a report of the Deputy Chief Executive (Place) concerning an application by Tescos Stores Ltd for the variation of a Premises Licence at Tesco, 21 - 23 Broadway, Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, SS9 1PA.
The application was presented by the Applicants’ Solicitor, Mr C Rees-Gay. Ms H Purewal (Head of Licensing) and Mr Lucas Szendera (Designated Premises Supervisor) were in attendance at the hearing and gave evidence.
The sub-committee noted that no letters of objection to this application had been received from any of the Responsible Authorities.
Representations had however, been received from Leigh Town Council. Ms H Symmons (Town Clerk) attended the hearing. Their objections related to the concerns of the potential increase in anti-social behaviour, crime and disorder and public nuisance, linked with alcohol in a residential area.
The sub-committee listened to all the evidence and submissions, and read all the documents. It had regard to the Statutory Guidance Notes and Southend-on-Sea Borough Council’s Statement of Licensing Policy. The sub-committee further considered the four licensing objectives namely the prevention of crime and disorder, public safety, the prevention of public nuisance and the protection of children from harm.
On the basis of the evidence presented to it, the sub-committee did not consider that the promotion of the licensing objectives would be undermined by the granting of this application. The sub-committee therefore:-
That the application for the variation of the premises licence be granted subject to:
(i) The Mandatory Conditions set out in Appendix 1 to the report of the Deputy Chief Executive (Place); and
(ii) The conditions drawn from the Operating Schedule set out in Appendix 2 to the report of the Deputy Chief Executive (Place).
